I'm having an issue with CS50's
check50 utility. My week 3 Plurality code is working, but when I submit it to be checked I get these results:
Results for cs50/problems/2020/x/plurality generated by check50 v3.0.10 :) plurality.c exists :( plurality compiles code failed to compile :| vote returns true when given name of first candidate can't check until a frown turns upside down :| vote returns true when given name of middle candidate can't check until a frown turns upside down :| vote returns true when given name of last candidate can't check until a frown turns upside down :| vote returns false when given name of invalid candidate can't check until a frown turns upside down :| vote produces correct counts when all votes are zero
Except, the code does compile. I have tested it with multiple compilers on my own machine (GCC, clang) with multiple
-pedantic flag levels; I have tested it in CS50's IDE by specifying a compiler directly (also GCC) and this produces a working executable; and of course the
make plurality command, which also produces working output. The executables also work, obviously, but this shouldn't matter; the results complain that the code doesn't compile, which of course it obviously does (on 2 different plaforms, for multiple compilers).
What is going on here? If there is something obvious I've missed, then why is my code still compiling and running fine outside of
Here are my
#includes and headers:
#include <cs50.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <string.h> #include <stdbool.h> #include <ctype.h> #define MAX_NAME_LENGTH 128 #define CHR_VOTE_COUNT 5 // 1 character, max. votes of 9., check buffer, plus null & newline character #define MAX_VOTES 9
I can paste in other code if necessary, but it isn't particularly interesting.
Thanks for any help!
